Validated Assessment Program (VAP) is the social audit program of a Responsible Business Alliance (RBA). This alliance is made up of leading global brands that have agreed on a common Code of conduct and social audit process to ensure social responsibility in their supply chains.
Today, it is a global alliance of more than 150 companies with a combined annual revenue of $ 5 trillion. Not only are these companies obliged to comply with the Code of conduct, but they also keep their first-level suppliers up to the same standard. The RBA has developed an audit protocol to ensure compliance with the Code of Conduct.
DQS is one of the few audit firms that is allowed to evaluate compliance with the Code of conduct. As an approved VAP audit firm, DQS will be pleased to have you in the supply chain social responsibility audit. With the help of a global network of offices and auditors, the DQS Group is pleased to assist you worldwide.
